NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- An Upper West Side man is accused of running a multi-million dollar cocaine ring out of his dead mother's apartment.

Gerardo Gonzalez, 43, is among six people arrested in the alleged ring which authorities say brought in $1.2 million a month.

Gonzalez started operating out of the apartment at 472 Columbus Avenue after his mother died last August, police said.

The arrests were made following an eight-month investigation that also led authorities to an alleged money launderer in Brooklyn and a cocaine distributor in Pittsburgh, among others.
